[Video clip] Sneak peek: Africa's fresh faces of transport & hospitality

NUMERIS MEDIA's Slidely by Slidely Slideshow

To be released: October 16, 2017...Did you know that more than 4.3 billion people now use mobile phones? That is nearly 60% of the world’s population. The widespread adoption of mobile technology has transformed businesses and services — including the transport and hospitality industry.

The September 2017 edition of Bank & Entrepreneur Africa magazine is titled 'Africa: 100 Fresh Faces of Transport & Hospitality', and it will zoom in on service providers across Africa that are not the usual names, but are delivering great service. They will be divided into two groups:

1- The 'Masters': Traditional providers of hospitality services who are deploying technology in order to gain and keep the customer's attention. You name any digital service, and they're in on at least one aspect: messaging platforms, smartphone-enabled services, and Internet of Things.

2- The 'Millennials': This group (Generation Y) is employing technology in a different, but equally astute way. For them, technology and the co-owning spirit of the sharing economy have heavily contributed to an entrepreneurial trend amongst Millennials. They are creating and thriving on fluidity and light infrastructure, while managing larger, more agile teams, and targeting higher profits and returns. Hence the airbnb-style accommodations (hotels with no real estate); Uber-esque companies (transportation with no vehicles owned), and so forth.
